This holiday hairstyle, modeled by actress Brittany Murphy, is a classic updo for curly hair. Simply pull hair up and secure on the top of head. Use a dry powder shampoo (baby powder also works well) to add fullness, a rattail comb to tease hair up & a soft-hold hairspray. The looser the curls, the cuter the look.
Women of all ages can get away with this look. It does help if your hair is medium to long.
You need gel, ponytail holders, long straight pins (the secret to a stay put style is inserting these pins in opposite directions, you can get 25 for $1.25; (800-275-7255)& hairspray.
Don't make the mistake of making your updo stiff & tacky with heavy-duty hairspray. You'll want a flexible hold formula that can withstand humidity, but leaves hair touchable.
